Imam Destroys Marian Statue -- "We Tolerate None But Allah"

(Damascus) Islamist rebels have destroyed a statue of Mary in Syria. "Only God can be worshiped in this country." A video shows Imam Omar Gharba how he destroyed a statue of the Mother of God in Idlib province, a city under the control of Islamist militias. "We will not tolerate anyone except Allah."

Wahhabi Imam Destroyed Statue

A Wahabi Imam (Wahabism is the most radical form of Islam and is regarded officially as state doctrine in Saudi Arabia) let himself be filmed in the act with the cry Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest) destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. The incident occurred in the city Yaaqoubiya in the Syrian province of Idlib, near the border with Turkey.

"Only Allah"

The city is Yaaqoubiya in the Levant is controlled by the Islamist militia Islamic State of Iraq and is associated with Al-Qaeda. The militia is responsible for the destruction of many churches in Syria. The video was released on Monday on the Internet. Omar Gharba includes a statement that "only Allah is worshiped in the land of the Levant, and only the law of Allah is allowed." That Christianity alone worships God, the Mother of God but worshiped, is a distinction of the Wahabit does not seem to know.

The Destruction

During his statement, the Islamist held the statue constantly in his hand: "We accept nothing but Allah's religion and the Sunnah of the Prophet of Allah, Muhammad." Then he smashed the statue of Mary to the cheers of enthusiastic Islamist bystanders.

But Vatican II (Nostra Aetate, Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions, #3) says, "They [Muslims] also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion.”

I was just going to cite Nostrae Aetate.

Now President Assad would never have allowed this to happen because as is well known by those "on the ground" he protects Christians and Christian places of worship. It is the rebels, US-backed and Israeli-backed, who are doing these things and stirring up anti-Christian hatred.

We must keep our eye on the ball.

Let us remember this Islamist this First Saturday and make reparation for him and for all who agreed with this satanic sacrilege. One of the sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the sacrilegious destruction of her sacred images. So offensive to God that He damns such souls to hell.

The dishonor done to the Theotokos is in equal measure an insult to her Incarnate Son. Clearly, the Orthodox calling them the "Hagarenes" as their normative moniker, should tell the West that which we have yet to learn; dhimmitude is Satanic at its best, and hellish at its very worst. They do not belong in the lands of Christendom. - Fr. John+

Wahabbism is the very worst representation of Islam and most Muslims are against it as heresy. Just for the record. And evil Saud made it up.
